Thank you. That is the only thing I can come up with while still riding the high from the total donations made from all over the state line.

Local business, dozens of volunteers, and hundreds of listeners all stepped up to show the importance of St. Jude and the effort proved substantial donations. In fact, 2018 beat the previous by $10,000. Incredible!

Friday night at 7 p.m. (at hour number 28) the grand total was announced, followed by cheers and tears. $80,136. We can't thank you enough. Words can't describe the emotion and surprise when the final number was read from the Ilinois Bank & Trust tote board. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
